Situation Grows Alarming. 

EVERYTHING QUIET IN E. ST. LOUIS 

Negroes Have Returned To Work and 
Plants Running Full Force. Trouble 
Started By Men Trying To Unionize 
Factories. ^ East St Louis Suffers Big 
Financial Loss. All Negroes Advised 
To Return. 



The riot in Emit St. Louis has quieted 
■down In in absolute calm. Negroes 
are circulating freely to -tbe' : streets 
and there aro no more ease* <fl dis 
eliminations and intimidations by the 
mob, police or militia being reported. 
Protests to the governor laat weak 
brought the Adjutant General to the 
scene of the trouble. Be immediately 
began investigation of ..the charges that 
members of' tat- ^militia wore not only 
di»er intra aUng aaaiait the Kegio, but 
were aetnaM** uwsng into their homes 
and driving them out and away from 
Eost St. Louis. 1 Two of the vie 
who reported, to a committee of 
aeai in Bt. Louis, were taken back and 
their taalii.uiif givsat. The adjutant 
- told the St. Louis delegation that hi 
.had heard nuicn evidence and that CoL 
E. P. • Clayton," who ia in command of 
the east aide militia, was "in bad at 
^pringneld. ' ' 

: An .Argue reporter, who visited the 
scene of (he riot this week, found 
' everything. apparently quiet. Col. Clay- 
ton was ao. confident that the trouble 
waa over he had .announced "ho would 
request the militia bo withdrawn: This 
confidence, however, su not shared by 
th." business interests. There is .a 
feeling that - the quietude was only 
abo've surface and the withdrawal of 
the guardsmen would be a signal for 
fresh riots. 

No Fatalities in Slot 
. Thc'tast Side authorities stnte that 
' no lives ware lost in the recent riot. 
\ There were several injured, of which 
the S'egrocs were in the majority. The 
business uicu have awakened to the 
fact that Kast Mt. Louis, as a uityvis. 
the main sufferer. Not only has her 
■pride and' prestige been affected, but 
her inducements to new manufactur- 
ing plants have been checked and 
sm'.ll business has lost several thou- 
sand dollars in monthly incomes. The 
furniture houses are packed with fur- 
niture returned by Negroes, who have 
left the city- and their goods must now 
be Wld at second-hand prices. 
Meu pa*. Returned to Work 
At the packing .plant* in the stock 
vards district the reporter fuund o]>- 
erating conditions again normal. Al- 
though about 750 men did not report 
at the three plants during the- trouble; 
Ihoy have all returned to work now. 
Ono of thc"n.*n»ger* stated that the 
men. who were at the plants when 
tbo mob broke loose were kept there,' 
fed and .lodged' fot three days ■ and 
nights.-.' 

Cause of Riots 
Further investigation uncovered the 
.real cause and perpetrators. °' the 
mob. About thirly-five per cent uf the 
employee* are Colored. The others are 
white, Vho do nut belong to a unioo- 
The trouble dates back to the strikes ofc 
iw'4 and 11116. Top. unions are, try- 
ing to unionize the plants, but' resli-i.e 
they must drive_ out the heavy Negro 
employment before- they can -hope to 
•be suocesafol. The Negroes are not 
taking th. place* uf white men. Some 
ban bees there for yean; All men 
get paid a* .touch per hour, regardless 
of color. . Wage. rang, from 23 1-2 
rent* to 97 IS cents per hoar, ' or 
12.35- to fS.73 pet day. There ii a 
short*** ef good, skilled white help 
and nttaahan of the riot gang consist 
-of a. class who are aot skilled or are 



too. indolent to work. 

Plants Cannot Operate, Without Negro 
Help 

Th. managers, of the different plants 
all. state positive!? that their firm. 
must close down if they cannot keep 
their Negro Jbelp. One manager .aid 
to our reporter, "No^ manufacturer, of 
toy importance in the country today 
tan get nloug without Colored help. 
There is and will be a still greater 
shortage, of White help. Thuro is room 
for all Colored men who want to work 
and In my opinion it-is not far dis- 
tant when thi.i country will havo to 
impert Chinese" labor. I advise the Ne- 
groes to come, back to Last St. Louis 
and stay/ I believe the better think- 
ing class .of 'citizens now .realize the 
need of- fostering Negro labor and the 
government is now prepared to fore- 
stall any- plot or effort to' incite future, 
trouble. '■' . ' 

The above opinion is indorsed by the 
expressions of other manufacturers, in- 
terviewed by the reporter. . Severs! 
firms in St. Louis are appealing f»r 
Negro labor and ». new district to bo 
built up with sanitary homes' for i/c 
comfort of the newcomers is be frig 
planned. ' . J ,

Special to the Argus: 

Littlo Keck, Ark.-, Juno 2— Before 
one of the largest audiences th'nt ever 
gathered la this city Boacoe Coukliug 
Simmons, delivering the* eommenea- 
ment address for the Gibbs High 
School, laid down Lhe terms upon which 
Negro migration to the North can be 
stopped. 

The audience waa ■mixed, manv of 
the wealthiest white peoplo of the city 
braving a Scree storm to pay their re- 
spects to the. famous Negro orator. No- 
braver words were ever uttered before 
a southern audience than those that 
fell from lhe lip* of tho speaker. 

He drew surprising applause from 
the whites, and, of course, kept his 
own peoplo in a constant uproar.— 

Coming direct from Memphis, the 
burning there bad evidently annoy " 
him, for. in a great burst of eloquence, 
he declared that "this wonderland 
called America is tho open door, 
man can shut it; the lyncher's rope 
cannot stay its hinges, nor the torch 
of the mob bum it *w*y. ,p, t 

Talking about the exodna of tbo Ne- 
gro, about which the whites had come 
to hoar, he said; 

- "The hand of war has led ten times 
ten thousand of my "peoplo to seek 
new homes, and tens of thousands more 
are eager to follow on. 

'-'Their Itadfrs make mistakes, but 
i he. people do not -make mUtnke*. 
They follow an Unseen 'Hand. 

"We lovo our South, and we would 

stay to till and possess the .oil, erect 
pur homes, rear the children, and grow 
mighty In the place of our nativity, 
but we knew that anywhere beneath 
the Stars and Stripes is 'Home, Sweet 
Home' to. us. . 

"I can say for my people that we 
wilt stay. The wait, aato asks for 
terms. I will relate them. 
■ "We. will stay/ if the doors of edu 
oation are thrown open to the children 
if judges speak the language of lew 
and courthouses become temples pi 
justice; if wa are given a part in th. 
government wo are taxed tu maintain 
and the ballot is put in our hands. 

- 'We will stay: if the true-blues wil 
eut up the lyncher's rope and put out 
the torch of the mob."

By Wta. Lewis. 

While very much haw been "said of 
Ma.l:,m Walker, the well known, hair 
cultufist, none too much has been snf.l 
of her as a business- woman, of her 
charitable aide, of her Christianity uud 
womanly attributes, indeed, it n'ill be, 
difficult to even imagine a tvoiuan of 
the Negro race who so fully meets ir.lL 
of the demands of wuiiinnlioul as it is 
conceived to be at its best. Slie has 
dune -ii much, accomplished so much, 
amassed so much wealth and in the 
meanwhile being smh mi upright wom- 
an that many of her own race have 
bad their doubts about the truthful- 
ness of it all. 

Madam Walker is a reality: 
dream. White publications speak 
tbo achicvemeuta nud successes of. the 
members of fteir race. The, Sunday 
paper- teem with individuals uf II..- 
kind, and because everyone wishes to 
know of those whu'huvo done things. 
The' madam is the must remarkable 
Colored woman of the world today. It 
may nut be generally conceded, but it 
is true just the sunk-, If we think uf 
our race apart from tho white peoplo, 
and of our poor opportunity lo iDirus 
wealth, then she easily equals tlto 
great millionaires of the white race. 
In fact, she is making rapid stride* to- 
ward the millionaire class, rey-ardlee* 
of her race, being safely beyond th* 
half million mark at (bis time. 

The amassing uf wealth is a distinc- 
tion, in- itself even if lhe/se*>r* moral- 
ists say otherwise. Thdifdiyidual of 
wealth is of interest to alt. The world 
is eager to know the ways of the rich; 
that Ihey are of our race gives them 
extra distinction. Ho when 1, a* a rep- 
dMentntive of the Kreeman, the lead- 
ing pablicat ii.u of the rune, made It 
my bu**rie*s to esll on Madam \-"-L«.r, 
I had in mind her various great quail 
ties, holding that she. is due publicity, 
and as much for her race's snke as 
for her onn> 

. 1 found her rather rctjpnt, modest 
in what she had tu say. I found her 
n real woman, without IT. -elation and 
arrs. She- is splendidly poised; . wears 
her wealth and honors with e**e— ■■ 
seeming nj. if she' had nil for nll-uf 
ihe years.' tthe is ,.f. good education. 
b'uL due*. not try. tu airn.'t attention

her c'ducaiibn was self -acquired, nud 
the better fur her, sini-.. -Iin'luiik mi 
the qualities that lhe saw she itsuA 
mostly in need of it. In shuX. she

THE SIN OF SILENCE. . . 

Wanted, just 10.00 men and women of our race to contribute 
2c. and a little time in an effort to arouse the President, the Senate^ 
and Congress of the United States to the injustices that are being 
heaped upon the ten or twelve million Negroes in this country. 

This contribution maybe made in the form of a letter to any 
member of Congress or Senate that you may know, or directly to 
the President. When there comes to us, like waves of the sea; irt- 
. justices, disfranchisements, class legislations and proscriptions; we 
can hear many inquiries' of what are "you a<7" goinsr to doabout 
\it? Now the question that we are putting up to you today is — 
What are : you doing? Have you dune your bit? We are, as a rule, 
too easy to leave to the other fellow the things we might do our- 
selves. Too often, we say nothing when we should cry aloud. 

"Silence gives consent, he that protesteth' not is counted in the. 
affirmative." therefore we should protest; we should agitate, and 
all should us.e all lawful means to let the world know that we are 
not satisfied.- ■ - ' - 

, ' "To-ain by silence when we should protest 

Makes cowards out ol men. 
The human race has climbed on protest." 

-Wilcox. 

"The voice of the people is the voice of Hod," so says the Sage. 
'If you do not voice your protests; you have neglected a God-given 
priviledge. If you can't express it in the best language,' there are 
hundreds who will do it for you. Nothing ventured, nothing 
gained. This is a- crisis' in the history of the world. Mouthfftrjat 
•have been shut by«oppression, have been opened by protest./ 

It jnakesno difference where you are, and under what condi- 
tion you are laboring, ■ if you feel the burden of oppression, you 
should raise your voice in protest.

RACE RIOT AFTERMATH. 

In another article of this issue of the Argus we have endeav- 
ored to give our readers a statement of the true conditions in East 
St. Louis, since the recent race riot, 

Law and order at this writing seem/to have been restored. 
Working conditions are normal, but the /fleets upon the industrial 
situation is hard to be estimated. While* the Negroes were the vic- 
tims of the mob, their sufferings were but temporary; and since 
peace has bsen restored, they have received their former positions 
and are more deeply rooted in", than ever before. 

The'aftermath is rather encouraging. from the Negroes' stand- 
point. It has revealed his worth to tile manufacturing industries 
of the north; also the communities- in which he lives. This" fact is 
moat strikingly brought out by a manager of one of the large con- 
cerns of that city, who stated that his firm nor any of .the-Iarge 
firm's of ■ the country Could successfully operate without Negro 
labor.' It was also brought out that the United States Government 
will take a hand in future trouble, because all large concerns are 
contributors. in someway to the prosecution of the war. 

That the>eommunities suffer as well, is interestingly described 
in an- editorial of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, Sunday, .June 3rd, 
which reads' as follows: ^- ■ ' 

•'East St. Loom is beginning; to see the imrnttlia'te consequences of the 
attacks made on its Lfegroas 1 by a mob intlsmed by race prejudice abdrtnspired 
by ignorance. About lOW'-Negroes have been driven from the city. These 
w.eie not idlers. They were not. parasites. They were honest worker^. Many 
or them were doing a charaeter-of -'work about the packing plants which the 

.average white-man refuses to do. Bui it is necessary work, -and until other 
people can be ■found to do it the packing plants cannot operate. When .the pack- 
ing plants closa, it Iwt Itfib j throws hui*irads of white mm otJt'of employment, 
with all that means to the business of the community, but it interferes with 

'meat growers and meat consumers in .1 large area. No man nowadays lives 
himself industrially, any more than h,- does morally. . . - 

"The Negroes who haye beendtlven from Kaat St. Louis ate Iheir. bread 
in the swfat of their faces.. They did.not even stop at Bread. Whatever faolt 
may have been found with the Negro, he has never been accused of parsimony, 
foo often his expenditures exactly ' equal his income. The Negroes are good 
spenders and Mley pay cash. The merchants and' the landlords estimate that 
loss of these lOUO Negrous means a wJekly Tshrinking of about fl&'boo in busi- 
ness receipts. Jfcjne of the mob have shown any disposition to make this shrink- 
age good.' -None of them hare offe>ed to fill the enforced vacancies; They are 
not even trying lo find place* for the white men thrown out of employment as 
result of !a.i'K of men to .■!■■ diaagreeabla though necessary labor. 
'/_ "The city has alao suffered in its inaus trial reputation. ItTs impossible 
lo measure this Susy. It is fortanate (hat the constituted authorities made as 
effort to Steep the mob under control, for this proves that the foes of law apd 
order are not in full charge.' Determined prosecution of participants in the riot 
willgo-atill further to restore the prestige of Cast St. Louis in the eyes of the 
outside work)." , 

Of course most of those who fled from East St. Louis, during 

.the riot have returned to their horhea and vocations and are satis 

tied. According to the best -information gathered by a reporter 

for the St. Louis Argus, none of them have returned to their 

; former homes in the south. . 



In hi* eloquent address before, the United Confederate Veter 
an-' Re-union at -Washington. D. C, President Wilson said: ' "We 
are' in the war and are fighting for human rights." The Preaisent 
was eit her ignorant of Xhe real conditions that exiats in this coun- 
try or ha ia a d a iib wa t e hy p ofcr i ta..^— ^ — l^ — — — * ' ' *D 



THE WORK HOUSE RIOT. 

In a riot which occurred at the 
work house Thursday, started by 
a white prisoner who threw a 
stone at a Negro, we are inform- 
ed that another white prisoner 
jerked a shot gun away. from one 
of the guards and assisted by 
one qf the guards succeeded in 
wounding eleven Negroes. This 
demands a thorough investiga- 
tion. 



Co-incident with the riot in 
East St. Louis, The Cotton Grow- 
ers Association of the south had 
agents on the ground distribut- 
ing literature inviting the Negro 
bae'k.Bouth, offering better treat- 
ment and higher wages. j 

How would a liberty bond look 
in a home where there is NO 
LIBERTY?

the audience, from the fact she de- 
scribed the great subject "Technique"

Wednesday Night 
Clasps At New 
Orpheus Academy 

Mr. Jus- W. Grant has decided to re- 
establish the N'ew Orpheus Academv 
Wednesday night classes. "Tho Old 
Campaigner" has been compelled, aft 
er much persuading, to aceedo to the 
general demand and will inaugurate the 
policy- again Wednesday evening, June 
20, with an auspicious opening. 

These Wednesday night classes were 
quite popular at one time, and the Hew 
Orpheus patrons have never been sat- 
isfied since they wnro disc on tin oed, and 
it is needless to predict Chat they will 
show their gratification on June 20. Of 
course tho Friday classes will bo eon

Siberia, Far From Being 
Barren Waste, Can Support 
Population ot 800,000,000. 

Stories of the westward night of 
Siberian .-exiles, following the revoln-' 
Hon and the, release of about 100.000 
prisoners who. have been hetS-by the 
Russian government In Siberia, gave' 
a somewhat wrong Impression ' of Si- 
beria. These prisoners have, for the 
most part been held In eastern and 
northeastern Siberia, the cold regions. 
They hare worked in mines under 
heartless overseers. Many of them 
were exiled without trial,. and most of 
them ' were political prisoners, sen- 
tenced after a perfunctory trial by 
government officials who took thnlr 
orders and tasted oat Justice accornV 
st«ty. - - . an: - 

Natnralhr tba am of tha. snecesa-

exiles resulted Id a scramble to get

from this that Siberia will within a 
short time be deserted, observes tha 
Indianapolis News, To the west Is a 
vast region Into which, la- the tan 
years preceding the war.. some 31)00,- 
000 Russians went of their own ac-

. Charge of Warldllnesa. 

. . If the application of these words 
were made to the church today, which 
would be very proper, the charge 
would not be wlae If It were made In 
the form ol details or the naming of 
fteooadlllon \f Improper conduct, but 
If the church were charged with world- 
linen, with betrayal of pure doctrine, 
with robbery as far as withholding of- 
ferings to God are concerned, then 
the charge would attract attention. 
The chorch of God today |n Its sinful 
condition stands as a buffer between 
G04 and the unsaved world. A great 
load or guilt Is on It today on.thm par- 
ticular account. It Is a misrepresen- 
tation of what Christ and hi a religion 
Ire. Tbe world -doea' not today rend 
Girist properly because It reads the 
■perverted message of Christ that the 

-chorch presents In its Ufe.

Jill not redeem any unsaved man. nor 
be an excuse for not getting right with 

'God; Here every tub must stand on 
Its own Bottom. What Is wrong < with 
the unweii man? Simply that he in 
out of right relationship with God; 
then la. a lack of adjustment." A man

.Goers. Part and Man's, 
The charging of sin Is God's part; 
the .confessing of sin u man's part. 
Fortunately, the people to whom the 
prophet spoke heeded his word, and 
we read that they made detailed con- 
cession." Confenlon la In a way 
the tame thing as repentance, and 
some meu.have"fihi>wn themselves to

knew how to repent. We tinve Dnjlil 
and Feter ns examples. Such conces- 
sion Is coming out candidly and ac- 
cepting .the righteousness of the charge 

,of God. God has passed Judgment, his 
charge la made nnd nuin must, like one 
of andent times, acknowledge (be 
charge 1u order that God may be' Jus- 
tified when he speaks and be clear 
when be Judges. We might note In, 
thl* part of the confession tbntllie'lh- 
dlvMual says "hla sins are multiplied 
before him"— that' Is, thi'y are In an 
exaggerated form, renlly what tbey 
are, as compared with what he has

I. The Crucifixion of Jesus (w. 
10-23). It waa about nine o'clock In 
the morning when Pilate gave his lnfn> 
mous order that Jesus should be cru- 
cified. It was Indepd a sorrowful pro- 
cession which moved Itself along the 
"Via Dolorosa" (the Sorrowful Way), 
consisting, of the Roman soldiers,, the 
tottering, pbyslcally exhausted man of 
Galilee, and, Luke adds, "sorrowing

America 's . most classic .stream, the 
ground alone costing (15,000. The house, 
(he plans of whieh ahe had with her; 
ill ef course easily be the finest ever- 
owned by a Colored person. It will be 
t steel and tile, with stucco exterior, 
Itnliun roof of delicate - cream color; 
rn. The rooms will be of splon- 
dhl proportions, spaciouB--ajid which to- 
gother' with tbo ornamental eilerior, 
uccordinnj to the plans, reminds One of 
(hoso faiunus French chateau! whero 
the families of tbo erstwhile rich no- 
bio folk hied themselvaB at times from" 
tho eyes of tho vulgar throngs. Music 
will lie Incorporated, built in the house, 
a great instrument with a varied ca- 
pacity — one or several — so arranged 
that tho music wilt filter throngh auch 
roumi aa dsairod at the (ouch of^a but- 
ton. The flower conservatory will be 
a part of the house plan. The garage 
will be apart from the house. A land- 
scape gardener will be employed- Eight 
persons bb help will bo required, and 
for whorh room! are arranged on the 
attic floor. This home all told will 
stand the madam (366,000, and as to 
architectural appearance will compare 
favorably with the beet on the Hud- 
son. Sho is proud to announce that the 
architect i> a Negro, now lieutenant V. 
W. Tandy, a graduate of Tuikegee and 
of Cornell, N_ Y. His former homo was 
Lexington, Ky. 

The madam is grateful lo her Cre- 
ator that he ha> permitted great good 
to flow uninterruptedly to her. In turn 
she will give' tbo beautiful palace in 
trust to her race, after the life of. her 
self .and (hat of her daughter. Aa ah< 
thinks of it now it will be held in per 
petusm in memoriam/of herself — a mu 
seuni^-or monument^— when in after 
years members of her race may pil 
grimage to it, thinking of. it also as an 
industrial shrine tb>t will be the -lag- 
gard*! spur, prodding him to 'renewed 
energy because of the realism of such 
a grand mult. There will be -no bus! 
.neas associated with the new home — 
strictly residence. The. New York bus

daughter la not less than ■ twenty miles 
from the. residence. 
. I count it my extreme good fortune 
lo be numbered as among her fiicndi. 
In (his capacity and as a newspaper 
man wb!o will look over the home with 
the view of giving it publicity I am 
invited there by the madam, when is
